The Century Arms VZ2008 7.62×39, is US compliant version of the Czech VZ58. It comes with two 30 round magazines. The VZ58 was issued the to the Czechoslovakian army in 1958, and it is still used by both the Czech Republic and Slovakian armed forces.
This Century arms version of the the VZ58 is manufactured by combining original Sa vz. 58 components with the following USA made parts: semi-auto only milled receiver, trigger and fire control parts, and barrel.
While the appearance of the VZ 58 looks similar to the AK-47, it was inspired by the German STG 44 and initial development was actually based on the 7.92 x 33. Mechanically, the VZ 58 is completely different from the AK-47, and no parts including magazines are interchangeable. Stock Set, Mag and Pouch are Surplus and will show character and usage. Main metal parts are all refinished and matching on rifle. Sorry no special request.
